SkyWatch: Mameluke Lanterns, Jeddah Sculpture

Often cited as one of Jeddah's most beautiful sculptures, the Mameluke Lanterns are indeed a striking feature along Jeddah's Al Andalus Road, where it curves and changes in to King Abdulaziz Road.  At night when the four gigantic stained glass lanterns are illuminated from within, they are breathtakingly beautiful.  The Mameluke Lanterns are the creation of the Spanish architect and artist, Julio Lafuente, who is credited with designing more than 30 sculptures for the City of Jeddah.
